HEREGE composing new album

The traditional heavy metal band HEREGE is composing the last songs for their new album, which lyrics will be about marking historical facts of 20th and 21st Century, following a chronological order, from the end of Second World War, passing through Cold War, Latin America dictatorships, untill the present, with themes about globalization and terrorism.

About the lyrics Rodrigo Dantas comments: "This concern with the level of the thematic is decurrent of some lamentable things that we have seen lately in the Heavy Metal scene, many people having ridiculous attitudes, racists and homofobics, amongst other forms of intolerance and alienation that are reproducing there. To not be with the arms crossed ahead of this situation we decided to revive the Heavy Metal subversive spirit, which seems to be forgotten by most bands of the current scene."

Some of the new songs were recently played live in II Bang Your Heads Festival, which featured the bands Herege, Whisper Divine and Dark Shadows.

MEDIEVIL "Atruta" – released by Griffin Music

The black-art band Medievil (http://medievil.net) and the recording label from Kyiv Griffin Music (http://griffinmusic.org) are about to present the full-length album “Atruta”

This album represents a conceptually new stage of Medievil’s development.

The theme of poison (“atruta” in Belarusian) is binding all the tracks on this album. The music is more heavy, hypnotic and black; it is soaked with swamp atmosphere of stagnation and downfall. Technically it is black metal with additions of old-school death/trash, poisonous vocals and ragged riffs along with classic BM tremolo. Ideologically Medievil is remaining distanced from wilting near-black trends, presenting itself as “res in se". Spreading around as bile, “Atruta” is meant to be an embodiment of evolutionary black art.

The album was in process of creation for quite a long time (2003-2006), due to various reasons. Among those are the re-thinking of creative principles, work on the conceptual side of the record and physical remoteness of Medievil’s members, who resided in different countries.

In November 2003 the video for the song “Blood Comes Black” was shot. Time and location were the most suitable for reproducing the atmosphere of the forthcoming album – cold humid fall, dusk and impassable rotting forest.

In spring 2004 during one of the gigs the video for “In Gloom and Spikes” was shot – a live video with studio sound.

The recording of vocals and all the instruments except for drums was done in Pyre Rex during 2004-2005. the drums were recorded in Zaglada studio in Kyiv in August 2005.

By the end of 2005 the album was mixed, in January 2006 the mastering was complete (Pyre Rex).

Total playing time is 59 minutes.


1.Everything Poisoned
2.Blood Comes Black
3.In Mist We Stand
4.Now I Fly
5.Atruta (I Dissolve In Poisoned Rain)
6.To Nihil
7.Cycle of Rot
8.In Gloom and Spikes
9.Veil of Poison
10.The Roots Are Torn

The CD-release is supposed to appear by april 2007. except for the tracks themselves the CD will contain a bonus – two videos: "Blood comes black" and "In gloom and spikes".

In Minsk the album will be presented with a live show of Medievil on the festival Shiseido Fest-3 on April 28th, 2007.

To celebrate the release of Cannibal on April 3rd, the band is giving you the chance to win an ESP LTD EX-50 Metallic Silver Guitar autographed by the band. So don’t miss out on your chance to get your own Static-X ESP guitar.

NIGHTWISH: New Singer's Identity Revealed?

Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat is reporting that NIGHTWISH has already chosen a replacement for singer Tarja Turunen, but the band is carefully guarding her identity. However, according to Ilta-Sanomat, the new vocalist is none other than former TRISTANIA frontwoman Vibeke Stene (Photo#1, Photo#2).

There are a number of signs pointing to the fact that Vibeke is Tarja's replacement in NIGHTWISH. For example, influential European music business person Frank Stroebele (manager for WITHIN TEMPTATION and ANASTACIA) recently asked an Ilta-Sanomat reporter, "Have you heard who the new singer of NIGHTWISH is? I understand that it is Vibeke."

Vibeke quit TRISTANIA last month "due to personal reasons," making the timing of her departure perfect if she were to join NIGHTWISH.

However, the only public information about the new vocalist that has come out of the NIGHTWISH camp so far has been offered by the group's manager, Ewo Pohjola (a.k.a. Ewo Rytkönen) of King Foo Entertainment. "She is getting along very well with the guys," he said. "She is very talented, clever and sweet."
